Me: I’m Kimberly, a writer and illustrator.
My background is varied, my inspirations are varied, and my life is varied — I’ve been a Jeff Koons sculpture technician, a tattoo shop manager, a fashion designer, have restored murals and painted floors to look like stained wood and inlaid ivory. Also, I am a Fitness Coach and Fascial Stretch Therapist (see RevelHeartFitness.com & SimplyStretchLA.com).
Now, I’m writing a manuscript on my experiences moving from New York to Los Angeles, after an accident restoring a Keith Haring mural resulted in a shattered calcaneus and changed the course of my life — it is about transformation, being broken and broke, being an artist and a lover of movement. I’m a fighter, and I hope you are too.
